to preventing iran of achieving a nuclear weapon and president obama echoed the themes a couple of days ago. however, i don't think the white house and the u.s. wants to be pushed in to on such a high profile stage battered with making a public ultimatum of red lines to iran so the speech is out. used graphics. netanyahu, former ambassador. when you listen to dozens of speeches in the room, never hurts to have some props with you. they do it in congress a lot. >> i think for a lot of people perhaps it worked. one question is, as he was speaking there were some bursts of applause. i'm curious, were those assembly members? was that public audience? who would that have been? >> reporter: well, we're trying to figure out but i think the delegations, especially here israel and a little bit with the palestinians, brought in extra people with the delegations. they sat way in the back. they may have needed tickets for this and think israel may have felt a little, well, they rallied from the last year when abbas of the palestinians and spoke just before netanyahu had huge standing ovations last year
has tried sanctions with iran under the leadership of president obama, the international community has passed some ofhe strongest sanctions to date. i wa to thank the governments reenhehave joined in this effort. it's had an effect. oil exports have been curbed, and the iranian economy has been hit hard. it's had an effect on the eco ecy, wust face the truth. sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear program either. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the st year alone iran has doubled the mber oftresn its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour there's only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomibombs. that'sy pla a clear, red line on iran's nuclear weapons program. [ applause ] re lin'tea to war. red lines prevent war. just look at nato's charter. it made ear that an attack on one membecountry would be considered an aack o all. nato red line heldo k the peace in europe for nearly half a century. president kennedy selt a red lineuring the cuban missile crisis. that red line also prevented war and helped preserve the peace for decas. in fac
a role into that attack. you make a good point. we've had three terrorist attacks on the obama administration's watch yet they have failed to call them as such or delayed in their branding as such. fort hood where i've done an extensive investigation, how can they brand that as workplace violence. it's just dishonest to if i could take my reporter's hat on for a moment. >> that what some of us was saying. this is so obvious to someone. very quickly because i don't want run out of time but i have to ask about new information on some of the security flaws that parental were at the consulate in benghazi. you uncovered some of those security flaws. tell us what they were. >> i spoke yesterday who used to be regional security officer for the state department. this is a person who was s in charge of the security in that country for the state department personnel. this is someone who worked extensively in the middle east. he says you need to go back and look at those pictures as a consulate in benghazi. that would have been a location as a high risk of terrorist attack or high risk of
cain is a long-time supporter of freedom for libya. he supported president obama's actions to remove gadhafi. he's been critical of how the administration has handled the benghazi aftermath. we spoke earlier today. take a look. wh do you make of the response by the administration in the early days of ambassador rice and now what they're saying now, they're now saying it was a terrorist attack. the president did use the word terror early on in the rose garden, but we heard from ambassador rice, who is saying link this to the video. what do you see as going on? >> i see a fundamental misunderstanding in the larger picture and then on the smaller picture. in the smaller picture they were either incredibly naive or willfully deceiving the american people. i don't know which. but to think an attack of this nature with heavy weapons, mortars, and a very sophisticated direct fire and indirect fire, that somehow that could be the result of a spontaneous demonstration is just impossible for me to understand. >> let me just throw in a third option, though, which supporters of the administration would say,
? joining me now is john avlon. listen to mrs. obama over the weekend. >> we cannot let anyone discourage us from casting our ballots. we cannot make anyone make it feel unwelcome in the voting booth. it's up to us to make sure that in every election, every voice is heard and every vote is counted. that means making sure our laws preserve that right. monitoring the polls to make sure every eligible voter can exercise that right. >> so john, so many new laws. so many different requirements now. poll workers are going to have a field day trying to figure out what it all means. is there the potential for chaos at the polls come november? >> is there the potential? absolutely. we're changing the rules. that leads to a degree of uncertainty. people who haven't had to show id befo i.d. before in certain states will have to do so. some folks may be afraid of that. we have a tortured history of voting rights in this country. laws strike an emotional button. we have instances in the past of voter fraud. the fact that this has happened in so many states in the last two years does strike many people as

consequences for misleading americans about what happened in libya. wasting no time, obama administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and
. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white
obama by hiding the truth of what happened in libya. >> sean: we are 39 days from the election, and "hannity" starts right here, right now. we're awaiting the first pictures from a muslim rally on american soil in dearborn, michigan. they're protesting the trailer that continues to be blamed for all the violence that has recently swept the middle east and north africa. they claim that the filmmaker has blood on his hands. they want to stress the need to curb portrayals of islam and the prophet. let me explain what this means. they want to limit your right to freedom of speech. we'll have a full report and images in just a little bit on the program, and as soon as that video becomes available we will bring it into to you on the fox news channel. first new evidence tonight that senior members of the obama administration in fact engaged in a widespread cover-up in the hours immediately following the nation of four americans in libya. beyond just their misleading words, it's now their behind-the-scenes actions that are raising very serious questions tonight about what this presiden
be frustrated that president barack obama cannot enact his legislative agenda without the help of a sympathetic congress. we're going to get back to more of that. but first, randy is on our line for republicans. randy, where you calling from this morning? >> chapel hill, north carolina. host: all right. so, are you one party, divided government? how do you come down on this one? caller: well, i just always wanted to say keep the system in congress the way it is. but here's the deal, and i'll be quick. i have two separate caucuses control their own taxes. republicans, their caucus would control all the taxes that republicans pay, and we republicans could pay for all the b.t. bombers and the infrastructure, all the things that we want, and the democrats can take all of their taxes they collect and pay for the social programs. and then, in the middle, all the sings that we both absolutely agree on, we just cut it in half and pay for that and then that way the things that each other don't like, both sides, we'd be able to pay for their own things that they want. host: that is a very interesting way
been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking ab
. in a lot of these places, one organizing principle has been islam. >> rick: president obama on 60 minutes and numerous remarks on cairo attacks and bump in the road comments ignored by the media and steve had a follow-up on that comment. >> they never follow up with the president. fundamental flaw in the media's thinking as exhibit by steve croft. they say the organized principle is islam. it's not just islam but extremist wing and maybe turkey and deinz but we don't know where that is going where the fundamentalist islam has been nonviolent or promoted the equality of women. editorials in newspapers all missed this because they don't have a religious perspective. >> rick: the assassination of our ambassador, two former seals of a state department employee, where was the criticism over that comment? >> i think what the president was talking about was the broader context of the wave of change that in the wave of change they there is going to be bumps in the road. those people didn't interpret to mean that the death of four american officials is is a bump in the road. that being said there

to a person of the opposite sex. that is the section of the law that president obama has declined to defend. at the house, they have created the bipartisan legal adviser group that is during the defense of these laws since the administration has advocated its role in defending it. -- has abdicated its role in defending it. there are several cases that have petitions for the court to decide amongst. the first one, probably the front runner, is a combination case of massachusetts nurses the department of human services. -- massachusetts vs. the department of human services. the equal protection clause violates the defense of mayor jack -- or the defense of marriage at-the people protection clause because there is no rational basis for it does not pass scrutiny. the idea of which level of scrutiny it must pass is a question. but they are happy to argue both. this case is interesting because justice kagen was involved at the district court level during her confirmation level where it came out. her office had been involved in the internal discussion of the strategy of the case, so she will be re
